CONTEXT Visceral adipose tissue (AT) is known to confer a significantly higher risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Epicardial AT has been shown to be related to cardiovascular disease and myocardial function through unidentified mechanisms. Epicardial AT expresses an inflammatory profile of proteins; however, the mechanisms responsible are yet to be elucidated. OBJECTIVES The objectives of the study were to: 1) examine key mediators of the nuclear factor-kappaB (NFkappaB) and… CONTINUE READING
